His books were failures but a movie was made based on the series that was successful
The books were successful until J.P. Morgan bought out the publishing company that published his books.
The books were mostly unsuccessful and only sold a few copies until Baum's son's wrote sequels to the series that sold over a million copies in the first year
L. Frank Baum
He was not a serious, rich, industrialist as were Carnegie and Rockefeller. He was a silly, modest, author.
He was not an immigrant who made it rich, like Carnegie and Rockefeller. He was an American who lost all his money.
He never married and had kids like Carnegie and Rockefeller. He enjoyed being single and able to choose a job without worrying for a family.
He was not kind and caring like Carnegie and Rockefeller. He was mean and enjoyed hurting others for fun.
